Is there a way to totally turn off the JSDT validator? It does not handle
my code very well at all. Basically all I want is the "Mark Occurrences"
feature or at most a syntax checker. I tried changing all of the
JavaScript Errors/Warnings settings to "Ignore" (in both workspace and
project specific settings), but there are still plenty of errors and
warnings showing up.

Should be able to go into Preferences->Validation and turn off the
JavaScript validators.

OK this is odd. I had not seen that preference item, but when I open it
up, JavaScript was already disabled. In fact, it was the only item that
was disabled. I tried disabling all the items, closing and restarting
eclipse, but it made no difference. The errors are still showing up when
I open up a JavaScript file. I also found "JavaScript Validator" and
"Java Builder" in the Builders section of the project properties, but
unchecking these did not make a difference either.

The automatic error checking that is performed as I edit a document in
Eclipse is controlled by validators, right? Or am I missing something?
